Anastasia Dyakova is a 2D animator from Melbourne, Australia. She is interested in animation for children, personal stories, doco animation and storytelling.
Anastasia studied animation at the Victorian College of the Arts (VCA), Melbourne, Australia. She moved to Melbourne from St Petersburg, Russia in 2013 to be close to the 'sun and the ocean' life-style Australia has to offer. Her second-year film “The Sky Between Us” won two awards and was screen worldwide. Previous films include “The Home” and “Neighbours” in 2015. Her last film “Ready For a Baby” tells a story about a woman in mid 30s who wants to get pregnant.
